New TV Spot For THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY Features More Action-Packed Footage

Warner Bros. Pictures have released another television commercial for the Peter Jackson-directed prequel, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Featuring some cool new footage, check it out...

The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever…Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities … A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

The ensemble cast includes Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Hugo Weaving, Andy Serkis, Richard Armitage, John Bell, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Barry Humphries, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Evangeline Lilly, Sylvester McCoy, Bret McKenzie, Graham McTavish, Mike Mizrahi, James Nesbitt, Dean O’Gorman, Lee Pace, Mikael Persbrandt, Conan Stevens, Ken Stott, Jeffrey Thomas, and Aidan Turner, Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee and Cate Blanchett. The first film is set to be released on December 14th.

@Trudy, some more:

“It is not despair, for despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt. We do not.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien

“He raised his staff. There was a roll of thunder. The sunlight was blotted out from the eastern windows; the whole hall became suddenly dark as night. The fire faded to sullen embers. Only Gandalf could be seen, standing white and tall before the blackened hearth.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien

“War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all. I do not love the bright sword for it's sharpness, nor the arrow for it's swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.”

- J.R.R. Tolkien

“He who breaks a thing to find out what it is, has left the path of wisdom.”

- J.R.R. Tolkien

... And this one is for the haters:

“I have claimed that Escape is one of the main functions of fairy-stories, and since I do not disapprove of them, it is plain that I do not accept the tone of scorn or pity with which 'Escape' is now so often used. Why should a man be scorned if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls?”

― J.R.R. Tolkien

True stuff man. Just by hearing 'Gondolin' on that scene my spine shivered. Anything related to the 1st and 2nd ages will be sweet bonuses.

Wish HBO would make a series with those tales a là Game of Thrones.

Man, HBO doing The Silmarillion would be one of the greatest things ever. You could go right from the Awakening of the Elves right up to the final defeat of Morgoth and Feanor's sons taking the Silmarils and killing themselves (provided the show could last that many seasons).

Too bad Tolkien's family are pretty dead set against selling any more of the rights to anything. The only reason we're getting The Hobbit and got LOTR was that Tolkien himself sold the rights to them back in the 60's.
